My assessment has been referred to the Academic Integrity Committee? What happens now?
The Chair of the Academic Integrity Committee in your faculty will decide whether there is sufficient evidence of an academic integrity issue. If there is sufficient evidence, they will decide whether you meet the eligibility criteria to be offered an Early Intervention or whether they will make an allegation of academic integrity breach. If you are eligible for Early Intervention, you’ll receive an email from your Unit Chair with details of this. If the Committee Chair decides to make an allegation, you’ll receive an email from the Committee with all the details and evidence. We understand that this can be quite stressful and you may have many questions at this time. Contact the DUSA Advocates now for advice and support.
I have received an academic integrity allegation and I am thinking of accepting the standard outcome, should I speak to someone?
We strongly recommend booking a confidential appointment with an Advocate prior to responding to an allegation of a breach of academic integrity. An Advocate can support you to understand the allegation and your response options. We can also provide referrals to support services, further information about policy and procedure, an explanation of why you have received the allegation so that you can make an informed decision, and answer questions that you have about the process. You can also read our Academic Integrity Breaches webpage for more information.
